Note from Sara: I am using this recipe for a holiday gift. I am putting it into a pint size container. To "fill" the container, I multiplied the recipe by 5. At this point I used only 1 tablespoon of salt for the pint size. You can add more salt to taste as the salt measurement is a conservative measurement.

Makes 2 cups.
